KARL PIERSON, ARAPAHOE SHOOTER
THE ARAPAHOE SHOOTER, WHO SHOT TWO STUDENTS AT ARAPAHOE HIGH SCHOOL IN DENVER LAST FRIDAY, HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED.He was 18 year old student Karl Pierson.His fellow students described him as someone with strong political opinions.Indeed, his opinions were leftwing and anti-Republican.According to the
Carl Schmidt and Brendon Mendelson, both seniors at Arapahoe High, knew Pierson. They said he had political views that were "outside the mainstream," but they did not elaborate.Although described as very smart, Pierson was apparently a hot-head who threatened one of his teachers, , with death; the teacher had him suspended for the remark.It was this teacher that Pierson sought to shoot on Friday, December 13, to exact revenge for the suspension.Unable to kill Murphy (who fled the school), Pierson used a shotgun to shoot two students, wounding them, , before turning the gun on himself.
On his FaceBook page, Pierson attacked Adam Smith's "Invisible Hand" theory of economics, and castigated Republicans for their opposition to Obamacare and other issues.He wrote:
The Republican Party: Health Care: Let 'em Die, Climate Change: Let 'em Die, Gun Violence: Let 'em Die, Women's Rights: Let 'em Die, More War: Let 'em Die. Is this really the side you want to be on? About that gun violence, Pierson apparently died a martyr to hypocrisy.Once again we see that the nut cases who go berserk with guns and start shooting innocent people are invariably left wingers.Don't expect the mainstream media to point this out anytime soon.
